    I think not if I can remember I think factory reset erase your internal memory which will delete everything you had on there

    If you do the factory reset in the settings menu, it will throw you into a CWM bootloop so its recommended that you wipe thru CWM

    I don't think it will throw him into a cwn bootloop because when I want a fresh start I do a factory reset and format my sd storage at the same time but doing a factory reset will erase all save data on your internal memory

    Please please please.....

    Never do a factory reset thru your phone menu only do a factory reset thru CWM

    It's not recommended. Be safe & do it through CWM. I take the experts' advice on that. Read to many horror stories about the other way :)

    I wasn't telling him to do a factory reset but I do when I want to clean my internal card but I save it to my laptop first and put back what I need or want cause if you download a lot of apps they get save to your internal memory which half the time I end up delete the app but still be having that data still on they so I do it like once every 3 to 4 months

    Its exactly the same, but do it from cwm or else you'll boot loop.

    it will not work at all. It merely says error when i turn it on. I looked at the logcat and it looks like the drivers cant work with the hardware anymore. I honestly think all the heat issues i had this summer burnt my wifi chip or something even though i didnt use it much
